AR silver Drachm of Salm b. Ziyad circa AH 61-65 (680-684 A.D.). This coin is a main type of the Pre-Reform coinage. Coins were struck in the name of this governor until the year AH70, five years after is deposition, for reasons that are still undetermined, but undoubtedly tied to the three-way struggle between the Zubayrids, the Umayyads and the Ephthalites. All Arab-Sasanian coins are distinguished from the former Sasanian drachms by the addition of an Arabic inscription (usually 'bism Allah' - 'in the name of God') in the obverse margin. His coins were mainly struck at mints in Khorasan. Album A-18, 3 pellets at obverse bottom (x2), Scarce VF+ (S. Album)
Salm. b. Ziyad, ca. 680-685, AR drachm (3.8g), MRWRWT (Marw-Rud), year 8, A-18, finest style, clearly a regular Arab issue and not an Hephthalite imitation, nive VF+, RRRR. Salm was governor in Khorasan AH61-64/65, and returned to Basra, where he remained until his death in AH73. The meaning of the date TWMNAH ( "8 ") is obscure. It could refer to year 8 or some sort of recognition in opposition to his replacement 'Abd Allah b. Khazim, or an abbreviation of AH68 by the same issuer.
